Octatrack Project Templates


#21

Out of curiosity, what kind of process are you using to propogate your setup?

There might be an idea in there somewhere to “Initialize Entire Set” based on a Library setting… hmmm… ideas…[/quote]
Sorry, don’t think I understand the question?

Ah, don’t worry about it, just thinking out loud.

Heh… in all honesty this is precisely the reason I was looking forward to your editor :joy: [/quote]

There is a Library module… I’ll leave that up to your imagination as to what it does.

Reading E-books on the OT screen? Wow that´s badass!

I am about to create a template and was wondering if anyone had cool ideas?

I am thinking of doing a project that features multiple configurations spread out on various banks, the project would contain some preloaded samples. This way I can fire up the OT and get to doing nasty stuff real quick.

Here it goes.

-Bank 1 to 12 (Default)
Vanilla ice cream but pre-configured for my setup.

-Bank 13 (drum machine for creating loops)
Using preloaded sample chains + features fader resampling trick and master track
4 versions spread out on 4 parts with different effect and sample flavors.
(I will use this bank to create stereo loops to be reloaded afterwards in other songs

-Bank 14 (Monolith synth inspired)
http://project1404.com/monolith2/

features fader resampling trick and master track

-Bank 15 (Pickup machine party)
Preconfigured to work with hooked up gear. + features fader resampling trick and master track

-Bank 16 (Drone setup)
Preset on polyrythms, some neighbor tracks

Project will be preloaded with most usefull samples but I will try to keep it lite so there is space left in the ram.

Will do the templates so Part1 is always pre saved as I always forget the usefullness of saving parts.

Any thoughts?
Other templates I should add?
Might also do a variant of this template with no master track also.

This will be fun to do with Octaedit, just waiting for the library module : )

To summarize, I want to create a template that obviously will serve as a starting point for creating tracks.

I see it as a bank library of various ways that the OT can be used, but all contained in one project. This should accelerate my workflow when composing or when I go to jam with friends. But also serve a a reminder of various tricks I tend to forget to use.

So this is my vision, yours may differ on how to jump start a new track but I am curious to know what you have came up with in terms of templates to get your creative juices flowing.

For context I am most interested in ambient stuff, drones, hard industrial, glitchy stuff, sound design…

I feel so alone :sob:


#29

Its ok, you’re not alone, you’re never alone :hug:


#30

Looks like you’ve got a good handle on what you need.
One thing I didn’t see in your list was a template that has all the flex recorders assigned to the 8 tracks. Makes it nice and easy for capturing 8 loops at once in any of your other banks and then getting easy access for making edits/ tweaks to the sample settings before saving.


#31

Wow thanks!
I’ts the kind of approach I never used.
Reason more for me to build this template and have quick acces to various OT configurations.

AI’m halfway done as I did most of the grunt work.


#32

Not alone buddy, these are really cool ideas - thanks!


#33

VERY interesting indeed !
Thank you Regis !


#34

cool thread. I would love to see example templates of how people set up the octatrack for a live PA…

live PA workflow is still something Im coming to grips with.


#35

Soon in the new version… :wink: [i]

(You know its already there in the old version, right?)[/i]


#36

I’d love to download that! Someone in the forum still has it? Does someone know what is this transition about?
Thanks a lot, guys!


#37

Anyone have a template for the seperate tracks into a daw (ableton) by chance?


#38

Should still be available in the files section I believe.


#39

I also did not find it…


#40

Hmm, @Simon @avantronica is there a way to search the files section. Couldn’t find how. I think the transition truck template was one of the first files uploaded, but it takes forever to try and scroll all the way back.


#41

Not too sure - googling within files area for transition trick or template isn’t much use either

I was looking for something recently and gave up - so I don’t quite know the best approach tbh
